College football betting lines: Mountain West not getting much respect

5Dimes has produced more early lines for the upcoming football season, and it doesn't look good for the Mountain West.

More early lines are coming out and 5Dimes has released a lot more of these to keep our appetite growing for college football during this slow off season.

At first glance the Mountain West is not getting a lot of love from the oddsmakers outside of Boise State. Even Utah State who is considered to be second in the Mountain Division is double-digit underdogs against Utah and just over a field goal dog to Washington.

UNLV is surprising as they are more than 30 point underdogs against UCLA and Michigan, and almost 20 against Northern Illinois. The Michigan line is quite odd since they have a new head coach and likely a new system in place  under Jim Harbaugh.

Colorado State's lines do not really add up. Being a 5.5-point underdog to a solid Big Ten team in Minnesota at home does make sense, but being a nine-point underdog to rival Colorado at a neutral field in Denver does not make sense.

New Mexico is getting some faith from 5Dimes, the Lobos are a two-point home favorite to Tulsa.
